I just got the link to this video sent to me by a friend and well, I had to post it up as unfortunately none of the AMF crew were able to attend and cover the first round of Formula DRIFT in Long Beach. The video was shot by the staff at and is an awesome overview of the pro drifting scene in the US.

From sideways action to a show n’ shine, the best of the best were out in full glory kicking off the season. It will be a matter of time before the Canadian scene becomes this big with the help of sponsors and advertisers to get the wheels moving. Be sure to support the Canadian scene by check out our partners at the Drift Mania Canadian Championship and attend the first round in just over a month’s time at St-Eustache, Quebec. AMF will be there in full force bringing you the latest coverage of the event, so stay tuned!

Enjoy the video below and remember to always get sideways…
